The hydrogeology research group has published a number of articles in the past few weeks on their research in the Salar De Atacama, Island of Tobago, and Massachusetts.  This stellar cast of authors includes Professor David Boutt and graduate students Marsha Allen, Sarah McKnight, and Brendan Moran in addition to recent alums Lily Corenthal and Alison Cole and colleagues at the University of Alaska Anchorage:
